I was just wondering the same. Still the 15th for me. Anyone with historical knowledge on the timing of when announcements are usually made?

I wouldn't be first in line to purchase any new product. I like all the updates (firmware, etc) to be made then I can decide if it's right for me.

It seems that Canon EOS 6D is cripled 5D Mark III and EOS 7D :) This model is aboslutely ridiculous and it is very clear that marketing department in Canon should be fired for such product!

If the 6D had the same features as the 5d3 but still cost $2000 - who would buy the 5d3 then? You have an interesting concept of marketing :)

+1. It's like saying the 5D Mark III is a crippled 1DX. It's always going to be a compromise. You pay for the specs you want, and if you don't get everything you want you're either not working hard enough or just wasting time =P

Compromise - ok. Crippled - no ... but unfortunately Canon imho has a tendency not to care much about complete compromise packages, but cut features just to upsell and protect the more expensive product. Examples would be the removal of afma from the 60d (should be a given in this price class) and now numerous 6d specs esp. since Canon was forced to release the 6d by Nikon's d600.

Yup, Canon whipped up that 6D in the 5 days between the D600 announcement and the 6D announcement!  ::)

The 1DX is seriously crippled, especially compared to the Rebels -- it doesn't come with a lens!

$6000 and the camera doesn't even work out of the box... Canon crippled it to protect their lens sales cause they know you can't use it without a lens!


PS- Where's this super amazing new DSLR and lens announcement everyone was talking about?

Looking for an announcement - Isn't Feb usually the month for the xxxD rebel ranges - are we a month out?

Is the departure of a major UK distributor - Jessops - Making it a bad time to announce a new dSLR body?

Anyway always looking out for new sensor tech from Canon.
Canon 60D, 24-105, 50 F1.8. 430EX II.
Sigma 10-20, 70 F2.8, 70-300. Studio.

Now you are asking for too much. It has only been 4 years (?) since Nikon released their 14-24 and blew Canons entire UWA lineup out of the water.

They need more time!

Aren't the two mounts a bit close for mounting a pair of 600's side by side?....

Why would it be a 70D when the 7D is older?

It's hard to tell if it's going to be the 70D or the 7DII. Either one is possible. 

The 60D is the 'weakest link' in Canon's lineup right now.
They need a strong seller at the $1K price point.
So, a new 70D priced at $900-1200 (USD) is a very good candidate for announcement - to boost sales.

The thing is, the 7D is selling for $1200 right now.
So, it's also possible that the 7DII might get announced first for $1600-1800, while the 7D remains on sale for $1200.
In this case the 60D will get discountinued until a replacement comes in the fall.

Nothing is certain, as we don't know what Canon's strategy is for their 1.6x lineup.

if the 7DII comes out with the same poxy 18 MP APS-C sensor then there will be a flood of tears the likes of which the world has never seen...
I don't think it matters what kind of sensor they put in it (unless it's a Sony) and what specs it will have, it will still receive only hate and disappointment from a certain group of people that frequent this forum. Probably combined with some whining about the lack of a 14-24mm in the lens line up.
